‘NOAGE GOES TO VEGAS’ GALA TO BENEFIT NEW ORLEANS ADVOCATES FOR GLBT ELDERS

Costuming, Live Entertainment, Food, Drinks, and Music at Rosy’s Jazz Hall on Friday, November 25, 2016

 

NOAGE’s second annual gala features a Las Vegas theme. Guests are encouraged (but not required) to dress as their favorite Vegas stars. There will be live entertainment, music, food, and drinks. There will also be Vegas-style games to play. All funds raised will benefit NOAGE, which provides programming and services for LGBT older adults and their healthcare providers.

 

New Orleans Advocates for GLBT Elders (NOAGE), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was created from a steering committee of concerned residents and older adult service providers to address the challenges facing LGBT older adults in the New Orleans area.  LGBT older adults often face discrimination when seeking medical treatment, have a higher rate of poverty, are sometimes isolated after the loss of a significant other, and often feel the need to go back into the closet when living in a long term care facility.

 

NOAGE hosts monthly “Coffee Talks,” movie nights, and other socialization and educational events for LGBT older adults in the New Orleans area.  NOAGE also works to increase the cultural competency of providers through trainings and workshops facilitated by NOAGE volunteers. As advocates on behalf of the LGBT older adult community, NOAGE is committed to ensuring that all LGBT older adults can live their best lives with the dignity and respect that they deserve.

 

The gala will be held at Rosy’s Jazz Hall at 500 Valence Street in New Orleans on Friday, November 25, 2016, from 7:00-10:00 p.m. Tickets are $40.00 each. To purchase tickets, call (504)517-2345. For more information about NOAGE, please visit www.noagenola.org.

Posted By Cindy Bishop, Checkmate Strategies, Wednesday, November 9, 2016

CHECKMATE STRATEGIES IS NOW OFFERING ADVOCACY

TRAINING DIRECTLY TO NON PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS

Knowing that there is a tremendous need among nonprofit organizations to create and sustain effective, impactful advocacy programs, Checkmate Strategies is now offering advocacy training to non-profit organizations at their locale.  Imagine how the influence your nonprofit could have, if all of your members had one on one training on how to impact public policy!


The 2017 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature will be here before we know it and now is the perfect time to begin planning a successful legislative campaign.  Along with that, this is an Election Year at the federal level! With that comes one of the greatest opportunities you have to be PROACTIVE rather than REACTIVE.   Checkmate Strategies will tailor a half day (3-5 hours) or a full day program, especially for LANO members.  The following components will be covered in the Advocacy Training Session:

ü  The Importance of Knowing the Players and the Process

ü  Who are the Players?

ü  Overview of the Legislative Process

ü  The Importance of Knowing Your Organizations “Why”

ü  How to Weave Impactful  Stories into your Advocacy Message

ü  The Role of Regulatory Agencies and How they Impact Your Non-Profit

ü  How to Use PACS Effectively

 

However, we can tailor the program to your Association’s needs.

Checkmate Strategies has a long and  rich history of advocating on behalf of non-profit organizations.  High profile bills such as the Smoke Free Air Act, the Primary Seat Belt Law, the Concealed Carry Bill, are all measures that were by battled by Cindy Bishop and her team.

Cindy is a veteran of Louisiana politics, with over two decades of experience in state and national advocacy campaigns and Michael Willis, is equally passionate about helping nonprofit organizations to thrive and excel.  We are excited about the opportunity to help non-profits through advocacy training.

To discussion options for advocacy training, please contact Cindy Bishop at 
(225) 933-5435 or Earl Michael Willis at (225) 454-2209 or by email

Free health screening in Lafayette

Posted By J. B. Hunt, AAAneurysm Outreach, Monday, October 31, 2016

LAFAYETTE, La — Heart Hospital of Lafayette, AAAneurysm Outreach and Endologix are planning a free abdominal aortic aneurysm screening event November 12, from 8 a.m. to noon.

 

“This screening test is a simple ultrasound of the abdomen. It only takes a few minutes and is painless,” according to Christopher E. LaGraize, MD, of Acadiana Vascular Center. “If the aneurysm is found early, it can be treated to prevent rupturing.”

 

Ruptured aneurysms are fatal in at least 80 percent of the cases. A simple and painless ultrasound exam can save lives.

 

Advance registration and 8-hour fast required.

 

 Call (888) 871-3801 for an appointment.

 

Individuals must meet eligibility requirements for the screening. Individuals 60 and older who have at least two cardiovascular risk factors and men age 55 and older with a family history of abdominal aortic aneurysm and at least one additional cardiovascular risk factor are eligible for the screening once every five years.

 

An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a ballooning of the abdominal aorta, the artery that carries blood to the lower part of the body. This type of aneurysm rupture is the third leading cause of sudden death in men 60 and older in the United States. It is estimated that more than 1 million people are living today with an undiagnosed AAA. Risk factors for AAA include a history of smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and hardening of the arteries.

 

Heart Hospital of Lafayette is rated one of the nation's Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals by Thomson Reuters.
